Highlights of This Van:

  apx. $5,000 of new and very recent mechanical service: details below (extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $5,000!)

Desirable, unique configuration: relatively short wheelbase and body length, combined with non-dually rear axle makes this van very easy to maneuver, even in congestion and small spaces.

If you were to compare the overall condition of this to other shuttle vans you will be impressed, as it truly is in amazing condition in every possible measure

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:  The front doors, dash and front of van is a one-ton Ford with gas engine. The middle and rear of this one is a wide-body structure that is quite tall (providing great standing height inside) but not super long.  In fact, it is actually the same length as a crew cap pickup, but is HUGE inside. A positive factor is that It DOES NOT have dual rear wheels, which combined with not being super long, makes this one quite easy to manage... even in a tight city, small parking lots, congested places, dense housing, etc.

Major note: this is a very rare shuttle van because it is not super long and it does not have dual rear wheels. This is a SUPER package for average folks to drive, even in the city and tight areas. Plus, single rear wheels create better MPG, and it is quieter and easier to drive and turn

 SHUTTLE BUS CONVERSION DESCRIPTION: this was converted by "Goshen Coach", which is one of the major creators of such vans in the United States.  As you see, this has a "bus style" front passenger side entry with large, easy steps and safety-glass barn doors. See the large door on passenger side which accesses the heavy duty lift with long and wide platform. As for this blend of seating and wheelchair parking: it was built very much with the ability to accommodate and navigate multiple very large wheelchairs. It currently has three single passenger permanent seats along the sides of interior, plus one "flip and fold" seat that accommodates two people, or it can flip up out of the way if you want to park a wheelchair in that location. There is a very large space in the passenger rear corner where we could add an optional 2-person "flip and fold" seat, if you so desire.  There is currently much open floor area to easily park several wheelchairs, even large ones. There is a commercial quality & capacity rear A/C unit and many big side windows and each has a vent mechanism for adjustable fresh air. Several of the windows have an emergency release mechanism.  You also will notice this has a deluxe interior with features such as: fully padded and fabric-covered (cozy, quieter) ceiling; many large, bright interior lights; dark tinted side windows for less glare and heat and extra privacy. Finally, there is a dedicated rear heater unit, in addition to the large ceiling A/C unit which keeps van very cool.  

MOBILITY: 

* dedicated side door provides very large, clear access to the large lift.

* Bus-style entry allows easy entry/exit of van, while lift is in operation

* Heavy duty lift with large platform and dual guide arms has an 800 pound capacity

* many locations in floor have anchor points ready to insert anchor straps for securing wheelchair/s. There are also anchor locations high on the walls, which provide possibility of attaching 3-point seatbelt systems nearly anywhere desired, for multiple wheelchair occupant use. 

* rubber floor is tough and easy to clean and currently shows almost no wear

    History of Ownership

Has had same owner since new, which is a unique non-profit agency in our area, Southern Oregon. It has low miles because it was used for limited reasons for the benefit of only a few individuals who needed transportation with lots of space inside.

Certified

This vehicle is 'CERTIFIED': There are a combined 76 mechanical and cosmetic aspects  included in the Wheelchair Van Oasis "Certification" process.   A foundational step of the rejuvenation process is when each vehicle receives an extensive inspection by an objective, independent  third- party service and repair facility.  Suggested service, repairs and improvements are then performed by various professional specialists.   The  result is your assurance  that each of the 76 aspects  meets  or exceeds the condition level of good, or satisfactory

For details regarding list of 76 cosmetic and mechanical aspects, please click here.

Each van does of course have various elements which exceed the promised level of good, or
satisfactory, which the "Certified" program assures.  Some are brand new improvements performed during rejuvenation.  And others are obvious service or repairs performed recently, prior to my ownership.  As for those, I only list here those positives which are certain, based on my either having a receipt, and/or due to being obvious to the inspecting-mechanic.  I refer to these as  "NEW OR RECENTLY SERVICED ASPECTS".  

New: Tires; major rear brake job; spark plugs; air filter; lube and service; service lift; new radiator; coolant flush; fuel system pieces; wipers; washer fluid pump; major rear A/C system service; oxygen sensor; misc service, adjustments and repairs   

Recent: front brakes; Battery; seat cushion and covering; both lift-arm cylinders replaced

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $5,000

Nothing notably negative or unusual: no frame damage...no airbags deployed...no structural damage...no "red marks"...no major accident.

You Might Like To Know...

* Each of my vans has a superb paint sealant as the final step of the extreme detail. If you were to have a professional apply a treatment the cost would be several hundred dollars.

* This is actually very easy to drive and navigate and due to its smaller profile, does not require a CDL to operate.

* Due to being in our very southern Oregon area (low humidity and no salt used on roads) since new this is absolutely dry, rust free and has an amazingly nice, super rust-free body and undercarriage

* similarly configured vans routinely are used for as much as 300,000 miles before they reach the end of their useful life.

* no matter if your passengers need to use a walker, or they are in wheelchairs, or if they are feeble...this van has the features needed to make their entry, exit and time in-between very safe, secure, and comfortable 

Summary of this Gem

A new similar van sells for about $60,000 and is not dramatically different in appearance or function than this one. Plus, due to its unique history this has had much lighter, easier use than similar vans usually experience... and with such excellent miles. It is fair to suggest this van truly is a..."must-see".
